Why the hoopla?
Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone can arguably be called the anti-iPhone poster child. Those Samsung ads making fun of Apple fans waiting in line? The current crop of those ads are for the Galaxy S III. Before its release in May, 2012, the phone reportedly became the most preordered gadget in history with 9 million early orders. As of November of this year, Samsung claims to have moved 30 million Galaxy S III handsets.
Samsung’s Galaxy S III is finally official and man, is it big. With a 4.8-inch, 720p Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy S III is the largest smartphone that Samsung has ever built–unless you count the company’s Galaxy Note phone-tablet crossover. And yet, the Galaxy S III still uses physical buttons for home, back and menu navigation, which means users will really have to stretch their fingers for one-handed operation. That’s the price you pay for a pretty, high-resolution screen, I suppose.
